Hindu Temple of Atlanta

Hinduism is one of the fastest growing religious communities in Georgia. Hindus in Georgia number more than 40,000, and they are concentrated in and around Atlanta. Most of Georgia’s Hindus come from western India, primarily Gujarat. Immigrants from India increased 200 percent during the 1990s, making them the largest Asian group in Georgia.


Hindu Architecture

Hindu architecture is the traditional system of Indian architecture for structures such as temples, monasteries, statues, homes, market places, gardens and town planning as described in Hindu texts.[1][2] The architectural guidelines survive in Sanskrit manuscripts and in some cases also in other regional languages. These texts include the Vastu shastras, Shilpa Shastras, the Brihat Samhita, architectural portions of the Puranas and the Agamas, and regional texts such as the Manasara among others

Temples (mandirs)

Hindu temple architecture has many varieties of style whose historic role has been to provide “a focus for both the social and spiritual life” for the Hindu community it serves, states George Michell.[26] Every Hindu temple (“mandir”) is imbued with symbolism, yet the basic structure of each stays the same. Each temple has an inner sanctum or the sacred space, the garbha griha or womb-chamber, where the primary murti or the image of a deity is housed in a simple bare cell for darshana (view, meditative focus).[27] Above the garbhagriha is a tower-like shikhara, called the vimana in south India. This sanctum is surrounded by a closed or open path for pradakshina (also called parikrama, circumambulation) that is typically intricately carved with symbolic art depicting Hindu legends, themes of artha, dharma and kama as well as the statues of significant deities of three major Hindu traditions (Vishnu, Shiva and Shakti)
